THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO FARMERS
"By planting and increasing his production in every way possible,
every farmer will perform a labor of patriotism for which he will be
recognized as a soldier of the commissary, adding his share to the
food supply of his people." — President Wilson, April 10, 1917.
PLANT CORN ON ALL SUITABLE LAND NOT USED
FOR OTHER FOOD OR FEED CROPS.
IF EARLY PLANTING HAS FAILED, REPLANT WHER-
EVER THERE IS A CHANCE FOR A CROP.
THE WINTER WHEAT CROP
Report of May 8 on condition of winter wheat indicates
that the crop will be the smallest for 13 years. Condition
of spring wheat not yet determined, but estimated wheat
production is inadequate to meet prospective demands.
More corn will make up for a shortage of wheat.
